Chris Evans is looking forward to the next chapter in life.
Et's Carly Steel sat down with the 35-year-old actor at the junket of his new film, Gifted, on Friday, where he opened up about playing a father figure on screen, and revealed that he "absolutely" wants to have kids of his own one day.
"Of course [I want to have children]," Evans shared. "That's certainly something I look forward to, absolutely."
"You'd make an amazing father," the actor's 10-year-old co-star, Mckenna Grace, adorably added. "You would be a good dad. You would. You're really nice."
"You're so sweet, kiddo," Evans gushed.
While we'll have to wait to see the Captain America star's skills as a father, he and Grace also dished on some of their secret talents.
Watching Chris Evans in his new movie Gifted, one can't help to think of what he'll be like when he has his own kids. In the Fox Searchlight film, the Captain America star plays a boat mechanic raising his six-year-old math prodigy niece (Mckenna Grace) when his overbearing mother (Sherlock's Lindsay Duncan) takes him to court to gain custody of the young child. At one point, Evans breaks down in tears. "Crying on cue is a tough thing to do, but I tell you what there is no better catalyst than this little nugget over here," Evans says as he looks at his 10-year-old co-star. "She is so good and so honest. Those tears start rolling, you would have to be pretty heartless to not get »
Last week a report surfaced online suggesting that Chris Evans is ready to hang up the shield following the end of his initial deal with Marvel Studios on Avengers: Infinity War and its as-yet-untitled sequel.
There has of course been plenty of speculation about Evans’ future in the McU for several years now, stemming from the ‘Death of Captain America’ arc in the comic books, and the fact that Evans has expressed his desire to move into directing.
While this latest report didn’t have any direct quotes from the man himself, Evans has now revealed to Collider that he’s open to renegotiating his deal and extending his time as the Sentinel of Liberty.
“It’s really not up to me,” said Evans.” My contract is up. I’m not going to sit here and say, ‘No more.’ I think Hugh Jackman has made 47 Wolverine movies, and they somehow keep getting better. »

Way back in 2002, Warner Bros. acquired the rights to Katushiro Otomo’s classic manga/anime Akira. The film promptly sank into development hell though, with every attempt to begin production running into budgetary, scheduling or casting issues. Today, however, it was revealed that the studio is eager to get the production moving again, no doubt fuelled by the anticipated success of Rupert Sanders’ Ghost In The Shell.
Akira takes place in Neo-Tokyo, a city built on the ruins of old Tokyo after a gigantic and devastating explosion. Its heroes are biker gang members Tetsuo and Kaneda, who become embroiled in a government conspiracy to unlock latent psychic talents. The anime beautifully combines sleek cyberpunk yumminess, body horror and surreal dream elements, all set to a cacophonously bizarre soundtrack of dissonant chanting.

Yesterday, a new photo surfaced from the Edinburgh, U.K. set of Avengers: Infinity War, which gave fans their first look at the returning Avenger Vision. While he was certainly expected to be back for this massive superhero ensemble, Marvel has yet to confirm any cast members at this time. Paul Bettany's iconic character is confirmed by these videos, though it isn't clear if that the actor himself is doing these stunts, or if it's his double. This latest video shows Vision in action, using his super powers to escape a fight.
The video surfaced last night from Twitter user "Mundo Vengador," who claims that this video shows, "Vision being kidnapped and fighting two aliens on the set of Avengers: Infinity War." Unfortunately, this Twitter user wouldn't elaborate further on this scene, or reveal who exactly these aliens are. It's possible that these aliens are working for Thanos (Josh Brolin »
Not all that long ago, as in, last week kind of not all that long ago, it looked like Chris Evans may be getting ready to hang up his shield for good and say goodbye to the role of Captain America. Now we have word from the actor himself that he is perfectly willing to play the part of Steve Rogers in the future, but the decision isn't really up to him. It is all up to Marvel Studios and, if they want to play ball, it sounds like Chris Evans may return in Captain America 4 after Avengers 4 brings Marvel Phase 4 to a close. Dang that's a lot of 4s!
While it is true that Chris Evans' contract will be up with Marvel following Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, that doesn't mean he is done, as was previously reported. The actor recently spoke with Collider about whether or not »
Every so often we get to this point in an actor’s contract where the future seemed uncertain. Following Iron Man 3, it became clear that Marvel Cinematic Universe poster boy Robert Downey Jr was approaching the end of his contract, and there was a lot of speculation that this could be the end. Given that Downey ended up in Captain America: Civil War, and that he’ll be around at least through Avengers 4, it’s clear that renegotiations are always up for discussion.
The same can be said of Chris Evans. This was an actor who initially seemed unsure and uncomfortable in the role of Captain America. While the first film did well enough, it by no means catapulted his character to the forefront of everyone’s favorites list. That wouldn’t come until Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and it’s around that time that Evans seemed to »

Although it’s not quite lengthy a run as Logan star Hugh Jackman’s, Chris Evans has been donning the old stars and stripes as Captain America for what must seem like an especially long time in Hollywood years. He first joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2011’s Captain America: The First Avenger, and by the time Avengers 4 rolls around, he’ll have played the character in 7 films total (not including popping up in post-credits scenes and being impersonated by Loki). He could certainly be forgiven for wanting to move on or stay put and build his retirement fund. In recent years, Evans suggested he was leaning towards the former, telling Variety in 2014 that he planned to start directing once his contract was up.
But maybe that big fight in Civil War has old Cap rethinking the pending split, because he now tells Collider that he ...

You may remember Evans’ interview with Esquire from last week, in which the Captain America star hinted that his time in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was drawing to a close. Indeed, the actor’s hesitancy sparked rumors that the Powers That Be were ready to pass over the iconic shield to Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), much like the same transition seen in Marvel’s original line of comics. And though Chris Evans will have fulfilled his contract by the time Avengers 4 crashes into theaters in May of 2019, the actor-cum-director is keeping an open mind when it comes to his potential future in the McU.
When asked if he’s set to hang up the shield following Infinity War and its untitled sequel, Evans told Collider that:

Avengers: Infinity War is still more than a year away and already, its casting docket is the stuff of legend. Bringing together Earth’s Mightiest Heroes for the third ensemble movie – both Thor and Hulk were conveniently Awol during Captain America: Civil War, remember – we know from previous reports that the Guardians of the Galaxy will hold a small, but “integral” role in Joe and Anthony Russo’s titanic blockbuster, which surely involves the Infinity Stones and/or the impending battle with Thanos.
But Josh Brolin’s glowering Mad Titan isn’t the only thing the Avengers will have to contend with; according to co-director Joe Russo, Infinity War will find our heroes “at their lowest, at their worst” following the fallout from Civil War, so it’ll be interesting to see how those costumed crusaders make amends before Thanos descends onto Earth baying for blood. If a new wave »

Here at Lrm we're kind of into Deadpool. Ryan Reynolds' sarcastic Merc with a Mouth jolted new life into the flagging superhero genre last year and anticipation for the sequel has grown exponentially over the last several months. The internet has been buzzing over the recent announcement of actress Zazie Beetz securing the role of mutant marksman Domino, but there's been far greater debate (and some crazy speculation) over who should portray the time-travelling super-soldier, Cable.
A list of plausible, potential actors has made the rounds, including Stranger Things' fearless sheriff David Harbour and Friday Night Lights alum Kyle Chandler; on the sligtly less-likely side, rumors include Brad Pitt, Dolph Lundgren, Ron Perlman, WWE's Adam Copeland (Edge), and even Charlize Theron; and yet, here's not been a clear frontrunner for the part.
If you're unfamiliar with the character, Cable is the offspring of X-Men's Cyclops/Scott Summers »

It may not have made much of a splash here, but Zhang Yimou‘s The Great Wall has made nearly $330 million worldwide, and now he’s already started shooting his next project. Variety reports the director has begun production on Shadow, a historical epic that takes place in the Three Kingdoms era around mid-200s Ad. Unfortunately, no details are revealed beyond that, but the cast includes Deng Chao, Zheng Kai, Wang Qianyuan, Hu Jun, Guan Xiaotong, Wu Lei and Wang Jingchun. With production underway, hopefully we’ll see it by next year.
In other news, Chris Evans has found the rare non-Captain America role. Deadline reports he’ll be leading Red Sea Diving Resort, a new drama from longtime Homeland writer-producer Gideon Raff. The film will follow Evans’ character, Ari Kidron, and his ragtag team’s involvement in rescuing Jewish people from Ethiopia and transporting them to Israel »

Jenny Slate is mending her broken heart.
The Gifted star split from Chris Evans earlier this year, after less than a year of dating. The two began a romantic relationship in May 2016, and made their red carpet debut just one month later at the New York City premiere of her film, The Secret Life of Pets.
In a new interview with Vulture, Slate candidly talks about her relationship with the Captain America star and reveals what ultimately led to their breakup.
“He’s a lovely person,” she says when asked if she felt comfortable discussing her relationship with Evans. “I don’t know. It feels like such a huge thing. Last year was a giant, big year for my heart. I’ve never, ever thought to keep anything private because that’s not really what I’m like, and now I’m learning those things, and they’re »
Jenny Slate may have kept her relationship with Chris Evans under the radar when they were dating, but after they split in early February, she's become somewhat of an open book. During a recent interview with Vulture, the actress dished on their breakup and how they realized they were just "really, really different" in the end. "To be quite honest, I didn't think I was his type," she said about the "odd match" with the Captain America star. "Eventually, when it was like, 'Oh, you have these feelings for me?,' I was looking around like, 'Is this a prank?' I mean, I understand why I think I'm beautiful, but if you've had a certain lifestyle and I'm a very, very different type of person - I don't want to be an experiment." The two first met during the audition for their upcoming movie, Gifted, and they instantly hit it off. »

Even Jenny Slate admits she and Chris Evans were an odd pairing.
The actress, 35, opened up about her split from the superhero movie star, saying their clear differences eventually led to their breakup.
“Chris is a very, very famous person,” the 35-year-old actress and comedian said in a recent interview with Vulture. “For him to go to a restaurant is totally different than for me to go. I sit in my window and I say ‘Hi’ to people on the street. I have more freedom because I’m not Captain America. I’m mostly a cartoon.”
Slate said the attention eventually became too much. »

So this is what it's like to date Chris Evans. One month after their breakup was became public, Jenny Slate opened up in the March 20, 2017 issue of New York magazine about falling for Gifted co-star. The actors first met during a chemistry read for the movie, and they shared an immediate connection. "I remember him saying to me, 'You're going to be one of my closest friends,'" she recalled. "I was just like, 'Man, I f--king hope this isn't a lie, because I'm going to be devastated if this guy isn't my friend.'" When Evans first showed a romantic interest in Slate, the actress—who had recently separated from her husband Dean Fleischer-Camp—was surprised, »
Variety is reporting that Haley Bennett (The Girl on the Train) is in talks to join Chris Evans (Captain America: Civil War) in the cast of Red Sea Diving Resort, which is being written and directed by Gideon Raff (Tyrant).
Based on the 1981 rescue of Ethiopian Jews to Israel, the film “picks up in 1977, when Israel’s Mossad spy agency was given an assignment far different from its usual cloak-and-dagger activities. It was ordered by then-Prime Minister Menachem Begin to rescue thousands of Ethiopian Jews in Sudan and deliver them to the Jewish state. No stranger to action in enemy countries, the agency established a covert forward base in a deserted holiday village in Sudan and deployed a handful of operatives to launch and oversee the exodus to the Promised Land, by sea and by air, in the early 1980s.”
Bennett’s recent roles include The Magnificent Seven and Rules Don’t Apply, »
